"We got there at 1030 and at 11 we had an admissions staff person give us and overview of OSU. The presentation was very valuable and informative. After that we had lunch with some students and a tour of campus. The students were extremely nice and gave some great insights into the school. After the tour we had our interview. My interviewer was extremely nice and started out by saying that he was my advocate with the selection committee. Right off the bat he made me feel at ease and want to work with him so he could portray me as the best applicant as possible. Overall I was extremely impressed by OSU." Report Response
